through of defense secretary leon panetta who pleaded with congress to find solution to automatic cuts that could be "de stating" to the pentagon. today, a pentagon spokesman shot down talk of his departure. >> secretary panetta is focused squarely on his job today. focused on the mission of department of defense and not focused on his personal futur future. >> steven hess who served in numerous white house administrations said after four years most cabinet members would like to go to their kid's soccer games and return to private sector where lucrative offers are usually waiting. >> bret: more on this with the panel. thanks. >>> former democratic party chairman says he is preparing another run at the governor's office in virginia. he is formalizing plans for his second gubernatorial bid. he lost in the primary in 2009. fireworks in the sky over persian gulf. iran takes a shot at a u.s. drone. what does it mean? what is next with iran? the fox all-stars discuss when we return. victor! victor! i got your campbell's chunky soup. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. the giants don't hav
out and panetta is set to go out. can this administration handle that much emptiness so quickly? >> that's a good question, too. one likes to see absolutely no turmoil. i spent a lot of time in the banking business, and the way people made money was if there was turmoil. when things are quiet, they're much better for the average person, much more difficult for somebody who is trying to make money. what we don't want to see in government, particularly at a difficult time, is turmoil. under normal circumstances there is usually a change in the guard in the middle between the two administrations, the first and the second. frequently there's a change after two years and we're liable to see this again in the normal course of events. the president sometimes likes to change his team. this is an instance when a secretary of state said, i'll wait until you get somebody else and get him confirmed, but i'm leaving. a lot of other people will do the same, only because that's a standard. it's tiring to be in that business at the top of the apex. this is no different in that regard. the diffi
finding a replacement for defense secretary leon panetta, finding a replacement for secretary of the treasury tim geithner, all of whom, geithner and clinton, have already said they want to leave. it was reported on friday i believe on andrea's show that lee on panetta might want to go. when you have all of those people who are in senior positions within the administration all needing or wanting to go at the same time, having the cia director resign is not the optimal thing to have happen. >> as the late robin harris said, if you have to go, you got to go but going at this time simultaneously is problematic. in light of the fact that panetta and petraeus were seen as outsiders, they weren't organically grown from within, they didn't involve themselves over the years in the organizations they led, that was already a problem. this obviously at the very least is a major distraction at a time when the president needs to be focused on a crucial moment of negotiation with congress on the fiscal cliff with everything from tax revenue to military spending at the state. it seems to be
be helpful. >> mr. flores. >> thank you, mr. chairman and secretary panetta and secretary shinseki for being here and also psychiatry panetta for protecting the dollar for those that have earned it. my question is a little more theoretical, and what promise this is the claims processing time at the waco claims regional center in texas, which is the worst in the country when it comes to at adjudicating disability claims. what can we do if the ids doesn't work. what are you thinking in terms of a new paradigm to fix this issue and both of you can answer or either one of you, but it seems to me like we've got cultural issues that cannot be fixed by having new systems. so how do you make -- you are doing your best to get the systems right but what are we doing to fix the culture so that we do what we promised our military men and women and veteran's what we would do in terms of providing benefits for their service. it just seems to me like we spend all of our systems we are not spending the time of culture so can you help me with that? and let me interrupt before you answer. one other thing. you

's an issue with leon panetta has to stay around for a few months because tough replace petraeus and all shuffling that has to go around. but eventually panetta is going to lead as defense secretary. but john kerry would be first in line to succeed him. what i find interesting is if it's true, it means the white house is not buying into the idea you can't pick john kerry because it opens up the senate seat and scott brown wins the senate seat. >> do you like kerry at defense as an idea? >> he's as qualified as anybody if he wants that. i just feel like if you want him for that job and you think he's a good match, don't be scared off by this guy. >> 100% agree. >> if he's the right guy for the job, that's where he belongs. >> i tried to throw steve a life raft so you didn't have to talk about petraeus and you threw me right off. that was the ridiculous segue. any way, next up, we continue our series taking a look at the most pressing issues facing the country. this last conversation not being one of them. today the issue was one that affects every american's wallet. we're talking taxes. >

secretary leon panetta and steven chu and also ken salazar. even attorney general eric holder and transportation second ray lahood, the only republican left in the cabinet, could be leaving as well. in 2008 obama told "time" magazine he wants his cabinet to be a team of rivals saying, quote, i don't want people who just agree with me. i want people continually pushing me out of my comfort zone. what should we expect this time around? i would bring it to the table. so i think the biggest one people are talking about is who is going to replace hillary clinton. the two names who have voted is u.n. ambassador susan rice and john kerry. i have no problem with susan rice. i think she's fantastic and unfortunate how she's been treated recently. i tell you, john kerry during this campaign has been fantastic in his debate prep with the president. i thought his speech as the dp nc was brilliant, and i think he would be a terrific diplomat. there's concerns that if he was nominated then the senate -- his senate seat would be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into th
